ME 473 – Introduction To Microfluidics (3 0 3) 5 ECTS

Review of fundamental aspects of fluid mechanics; scaling laws and flow transport in small length scales; capillary-driven and pressure-driven flows in microchannels; electro-kinetic based microflows; microflow manipulation; review of common microfabrication techniques in microfluidics; microfluidic applications. There will be laboratory practices to demonstrate microflows.
